Members of the public are being invited to join students from the University of Lincoln when they attend lectures about architecture and design this semester.
Entitled ‘Architecture and Design, Antiquity to 1600’, the lecture series has been organised for the benefit of first-year History of Art and Design students from the Lincoln School of Art and Design.
Presented by Dr John Lord, the lectures will cover architecture from ancient Greece and the Etruscans to Gothic and Renaissance developments.
“The first lecture will be a general introduction to architectural structure and looking at the implications of architecture,” said Dr Lord.
“Over the weeks the lectures will include pre-Greek Greece, Greek temples, triumphal arches, Roman glass, Norman churches, what was known of furniture and many other structures.
“There will be plenty of illustrations and diagrams and I am hoping to have some artefacts from the City and County Museum to help demonstrate the styles.”
The lectures – which take place between 12.30pm and 1.30pm at the Usher Gallery on Lindum Road, Lincoln – will commence on Thursday 25th September and will continue on each Thursday of the coming semester, concluding on 11th December.
The lectures series will run as follows:
